Immerse yourself in the wonders of Joshua Tree National Park and connect with the enchantment to be found there.  The content of this workshop will focus, not only on the mechanics of photography, but, also on personal interpretation and expression which is the heart of the art.   Our experience of this marvelous land will be enhanced by camping (optional) in the Lost Horse Campground, from Friday through Sunday.  The weekend schedule includes two (2) sunrise shoots,  two (2) morning shoots, one (1) sunset shoot,  one (1) optional night sky shoot.  There will be classroom programs to provide an orientation, to discuss “The Essence of Fine Art” and Photo Sharing and Photo Reviews.  This is an “action packed” workshop, so, bring your camera equipment, camping equipment and enthusiasm and watch your creativity soar!

Camping Option:  As we will drive right to the campground, this is considered “car camping”.  All of your equipment can be unloaded right at the campsite.  So you don’t have to worry about carrying your tent or cooler any distances! So, pack any equipment to make your weekend stay comfortable and easy.  You will need to provide your own meals and cooking equipment.  Bathroom facilities are found at the campground.  Camping equipment can be rented from local outfitters.  Please call 760-367-5535 for more information.  We are here to answer your questions!
